GARLAND -- There is only one undefeated Region 11 team and it is Da Bears.
Twice rallying from two-run deficits, two-time defending league champion Bear River scored the game-winning run with two outs in the seventh inning Friday.
"We didn't want to be tied and wanted to stay in first place," said senior right fielder Aleisha Taylor, who is the team's No. 8 batter. "This helps our confidence, but it also shows we have a lot of work to do."
Taylor's RBI bloop single into right-center field scored Rebekah Wheatley in a 6-5 come-from-behind win over the previously unbeaten Cowboys.
A three-run sixth had given the four-time defending state 3-A champion Bears a 5-3 lead. But Taylor Waters' two-out, two-run bomb over the left-center field fence pulled Grantsville even at 5-all after 6 1/2 innings.
Da Bears had two base runners tagged out at third base in their half of the seventh, with Wheatley reaching base on a fielder's choice.
"It was a wild game. I was concentrating on hitting the ball and not getting out," the 18-year-old Taylor said. "I swung at it; it wasn't a good swing. It got the job done, thank goodness. A two-run lead is not enough against Grantsville."
The Cowboys (7-3 overall, 4-1 league) had three of their six hits, including two doubles, in a two-run first inning.
"We were nervous early on and not playing our game," Taylor said. "We just settled down and played our game."
Bear River junior right-hander Jordan Theurer allowed just three hits spanning the next six innings. She struck out seven, walked one and hit a batter.
The Bears (8-2, 4-0), stranded nine base runners -- six in scoring position -- and committed three errors in winning their sixth straight game.
Leaoff batter Morgan Summers went 2-for-3 with a walk -- she also reached safely on a fielder's choice -- scored two runs and swiped three stolen bases. Kassi Fronk was 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs; Theurer singled and had a run-scoring groundout; Tyree Haramoto went 2-for-2 with a walk -- she was also hit by a pitch -- a stolen base and two runs; and Taylor was 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBIs, a run and two stolen bases for Bear River.
Taylor scored the go-ahead run in the sixth when Summers drew a two-out walk and Grantsville tried to pick her off after Summers rounded the base, but the first baseman dropped the ball.
"It was just something Morgan did," Taylor said. "Scoring the run that gave us the lead was a bigger play, but it was nice getting the game-winning hit, too."
